From all of us at DPLA, we would like to offer our sincere thanks to all who joined us in Chicago last week for DPLAfest 2017! Whether you attended the fest or joined the conversation from afar, we deeply appreciate the contributions of each participant, presenter and volunteer. For those who couldn’t make it to Chicago (or who couldn’t be in multiple great sessions at once), we have compiled the following one-stop guide to the news, notes, media, and other materials documenting DPLAfest 2017.
DPLAfest 2017, the fourth annual event bringing together members of the broad DPLA community, officially kicked off Thursday morning at Chicago Public Library’s Harold Washington Library Center. Over the next two days, over 350 participants, representing diverse fields including libraries, archives, museums, technology, education, and more, will come together to learn, converse, and collaborate in a broad range of sessions, workshops, and working sessions.
DPLAfest 2017 is around the corner and we are thrilled to be heading to Chicago, one of the nation’s most dynamic cities, to learn, converse, and explore with you, both during and beyond the fest. Whether you are a Chicago newcomer or a native, check out highlights below for local institutions and events to explore while in town for the fest. For those participating in the fest both near and far, we are also excited to take this opportunity to showcase the digital diversity of Chicago’s rich cultural heritage community.

We celebrate the diversity of our DPLA community of partners and users and want to ensure that these perspectives are represented at DPLAfest, which is why we are thrilled to announce three fully funded travel awards to attend DPLAfest 2017.
